Exciting Racing in El Puerto de Santa Maria
Posted On:  17/09/2015 17:15:32

We're set for some exciting racing to the very end. The ladies are fighting hard and despite the small fleet of just 7 sailors, the podium places have not yet been secured. We've got a Youth, Senior, Grand Master and Veteran in the top 4. It's great to see the Youth fighting with Veteran sailors as equals. The more experienced ladies often come on top of this confrontation, just like today when Maria Antonia Dominguez won two of the three races and is now just one point behind Aleksandra Blinnikka from Finland. Third is the best Youth Pilar Lamadrid Trueba and fourth the only GM Ilona Grinberga. Can't wait to see what the next days will bring, especially when the second discard is in place after 12 races.

Stay tuned for today's video where our ladies share their views on the class and Raceboard racing.

Another good rivalry to follow is the father-son battle between the Blinnikkas. Juha and Daniel are just one point apart in 6th and 7th overall. You could feel the intensiveness very well today. Pumping most of the way.

The top three have not changed with Nicolas Huguet close to securing his title with another three wins. Many things can still happen, but it will be hard for the two Spanish sailors, Toni Colomar Torres and Alejandro Buchau, in second and third to reduce the point difference.

We plan to have some info straight from the press boat tomorrow. Keep a lookout on our twitter feed and website for txt, photos and video content.
